  Schloss Dagstuhl : Seminar Homepage
The conviction that mathematical logic is a unifying principle in computer science and that methods from different theoretical areas as well as application domains should be brought together has lead to a successful new conference: FLoC, the Federated Logic Conferences, which was held in 1999 for the second time after its initiation in 1996.
The 2001 seminar is intended to contribute to the interdisciplinary view of logic in computer science by bringing together leading scientists from various disciplines within the area of automated deduction, as well as from application areas, this time in particular from planning and program analysis and verification.
Firmly based on inter-related logic and algorithmic concepts, these areas are in the process of extending their scope from finite domain-based fixpoint computation to infinite systems where more complex forms of deductive computation are required, and where the gap to traditional forms of program verification based on induction needs to be closed.

  Deduction - LoveToKnow 1911   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
In logic it is generally used in contradiction to "induct:on" for a kind of mediate inference, in which a conclusion (often itself called the deduction) is regarded as following necessarily under certain fixed laws from premises.
This, the most common, form of deduction is the syllogism (q.v.; see also Logic), which consists in taking a general principle and deriving from it facts which are necessarily involved in it.
This use of deduction is of comparatively modern origin; it was originally used as the equivalent of Aristotle's arra-ywyr t (see Prior Analytics, B xxv.).

 deduction - HighBeam Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
deduction in logic, form of inference such that the conclusion must be true if the premises are true.
Logicians contrast deduction with induction, in which the conclusion might be false even when the premises are true.
The famous Aristotelian syllogism is one species of deductive reasoning, which was greatly extended by the development of symbolic logic.

 Health Insurance Deduction of Little Help to The Uninsured -- Revised 10/18/00
The deduction would be available to taxpayers that pay at least 50 percent of the cost of their health insurance.
Because the deduction provides a far-deeper percentage subsidy for the purchase of insurance to higher-income business owners and executives than to lower-income wage earners, it could encourage small business owners to drop, or fail to institute, group coverage and to rely instead on this deduction to help defray the cost of their own coverage.
The deduction is worth more than twice as much to individuals in the top tax brackets (the 31 percent, 36 percent, or 39.6 percent brackets) than to moderate- and middle-income families in the 15 percent bracket.

 Publication 970 (2005), Tax Benefits for Education
You cannot claim this deduction if your filing status is married filing separately or if another person can claim an exemption for you as a dependent on his or her tax return.
Generally, the deduction is allowed for qualified education expenses paid in 2005 in connection with enrollment at an institution of higher education during 2005 or for an academic period beginning in 2005 or in the first 3 months of 2006.
For purposes of the tuition and fees deduction, qualified education expenses are tuition and certain related expenses required for enrollment or attendance at an eligible educational institution.

 Proposal For New HSA Tax Deduction Found Likely to Increase the Ranks of the Uninsured, 5/10/04
The proposed deduction would be of significant benefit to high-income taxpayers; they would receive the largest tax benefit from the deduction because they are in the highest tax brackets.
But while the proposed deduction would be valuable for high-income individuals, it would be unlikely to have large effects in enabling uninsured people to gain coverage, since it would do little to make insurance affordable for most people who lack it.
This high-deductible plan includes a deductible of $3,350, zero percent cost-sharing after the deductible is met, and a maximum out-of-pocket limit of $3,350.

 CHURCHES, POLITICS, AND THE CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTION DEDUCTION
The deduction for charitable contributions is one of the oldest deduction provisions in the tax laws.
The charitable contribution deduction has remained part of the Internal Revenue Code ever since, with the percentage of adjusted gross income that can be deducted as charitable contributions in a single year eventually being raised to 50% for churches and other public charities for contributions of cash and ordinary income property.
The impact of the charitable contribution deduction should be of particular concern to religious congregations, both because many espouse a moral belief in equality of all and because this system favors the charitable activities favored by the wealthy.

 Restoration of the IRS Sales Tax Deduction
The deduction of state and local sales taxes was one of the last (and most contentious) items considered by the Senate, but the final efforts to restore at least some vestige of the deduction, led in part by Senator Phil Gramm, ultimately failed.
Although the sales tax deductions were eliminated in part for reasons of tax simplification, the proposed legislation before Congress would add only one more line to Schedule A, for those taxpayers electing to itemize on their Form 1040.
Reinstatement of the deduction for sales taxes would eliminate the fundamental disparity created by TRA86, when citizens in states with a personal income tax were permitted to deduct such taxes, but citizens in states without an income tax had no corresponding deduction.

 Home Office Tax Deduction
Starting with tax year 1999, the home-office deduction requirements were relaxed somewhat which could allow more self-employed people to take a deduction for businesses they operate from their homes.

For those that qualify, deductions can be taken for repairs, mortgage interest, taxes, utilities and depreciation (as a percentage based on proportionate usage of the office space to the home).

 Deduction   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
Deductive arguments are those in which the conclusion follows from the premisses because of the agreed meaning of the syncategorematic words used to express the argument.
For this reason, deduction gives us no new information about the world; but this also makes deduction the most powerful type of reasoning.
In deduction, the major premiss of the argument is a RULE, or general statement, while the minor premiss is a CASE - a class or instance subsumed under the rule.

 Notional Interest Deduction (NID), PwC Belgium
The principle of the notional interest deduction is based on the traditional financial theory demonstrating that it is relatively easy to isolate a risk-free interest rate component embedded in a return on risk capital.
The notional interest deduction is compliant with EU “state aid” rules, as it is accessible to all Belgian tax-resident companies and Belgian branches of non-resident companies, irrespective of their activities.
Finally, in order to benefit from this new regime, it was initially foreseen that the amount of the notional interest deduction allowance for a given financial year should remain on a separate account of the company’s or branch’s balance sheet for the financial year at hand and the 3 financial years to come.
